Iowa Winter Weather Advisory

A storm system tracking from western Nebraska into Missouri will spread accumulating snow across eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois tonight into Thursday morning. Accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are expected, which will impact the Thursday morning commute.

COUNTIES INCLUDED: Clinton, Cedar, Scott, Muscatine, and Louisa.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for snow, which is in effect from 9pm this evening to 10am CST Thursday (3/3/2016).

Snow will begin late this evening and will continue into Thursday morning. Snowfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches will be possible. The winds will be out of the east to northeast at 10 to 15-mph. This will create visibilities a miles or less in heavier snowfall.

Impacts will be snow covered and hazardous roads and sidewalks along with low visibility in heavier snowfall. A winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slick, snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and be careful while driving.
